ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service, The 
county and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The State 
Markets Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the County Agents of the 
University of Florida's Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area and 
county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Com- 
mittee, Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood 
Sweet Corn Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and trans- 
portation firms provided the Inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic 
data used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these 
individuals and groups is appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B. Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs , 
West Palm Reach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage , 
production and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the 
direction of Van B. Johnson, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop and 
Livestock Reporting Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS-- During the growing sea- 
son estimates were prepared for most crops on a calendar 
quarter to indicate available supplies for shorter periods 
of time than the entire crop year. The Fall, Winter, 
Spring quarterly estimates are combined into a crop year 
total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is shown 
by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same quarter, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested and planted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the acreage production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable qual- 
ity but was not harvested because of labor shortages , low 
prices or other economic factors; or if harvested, was not 
sold or utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acreage 
and production lost because of economic reasons are dif- 
ficult to define and measure, and are not attempted unless 
such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received on an f.o. b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 
Included are packing charges, selling charges, precooling 
top ice, or other costs which contribute to the value of the 
product at shipping point. The value per unit for quantities 
sold to processors is the average value paid for usuable 



quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. This 
value includes transportation and other normal costs in- 
cident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized becaused of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result 
in the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop, unless 
specified. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num- 
ber of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL) —Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities , using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis or predetermined load factors. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The offical 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most common- 
ly used containers. If changes in container weights are 
necessary, all data pertaining to the production of the 
commodity in question is revised to maintain compara- 
bility between years. The table below gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per 
hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1973-74 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida grown vegetables, melons, potatoes and 
strawberries were valued at $402. 8 millionfor the 1973-74 
season. This was an increase of $2. 7 million over the 
1972-73 season. Since acres harvested declined 3 percent 
to 355,150, improved yields for major crops and improved 
prices contributed to the gain in value. 

Potato marketings were the largest contributor to 
the higher total value with a gain of $12.6 million. This 
increase was due entirely to improved prices. Value of 
tomatoes marketed rose $9. 9 million as a result of greatly 
improved yields and higher prices. Other crops gaining in 
value were cucumbers , eggplant, green peppers and squash. 
These increases more than offset declines in value of snap 
beans, cabbage, celery, escarole, lettuce, radishes, and 
watermelons. 

Average yields for eleven major crops declined 
slightly during the season compared with the previous sea- 
son. However, substantial yield increases were recorded 
for cabbage, eggplant, green peppers, and tomatoes. 

Season average prices of ten crops increased from 
a year earlier, while prices for six crops declined slightly. 
The largest price increase was for green peppers followed 
by potatoes. The greatest price decline occurred for 
cabbage which lost 17 percent. 

Conditions in July and early August were generally 
wet from frequent showers. Plantings were delayed or in- 
terrupted. Hot, humid weather prevailed during much of 
the fall planting period through October. Showers were 
spotty over central, northern and western areas. Temper- 
atures were generally 2 to 3 degrees above normal during 
most of the planting period. Generally, November was a 
dry month. Locally heavy showers occurred but many 
areas required heavy irrigation. 

A cold front passed through in December causing 
moderate damage to young tender crops in the southern 
areas. The upper East Coast held just above freezing, 
while some inland temperatures were 28 to 33 degrees. 
Dade County recorded a 31 degree low. The Everglades 
had lows mostly in the 27 to 31 degree range. The South- 
west had frost, even along the coast with growers report- 
ing 26 degrees at LaBelle, 28 at Immokalee and 30 degrees 
at the Ft. Myers -Naples area. The west central area ex- 
perienced lows similar to those in the Southwest while some 
north central pockets dropped to as low as 24 degrees. 
Adverse weather continued to plague vegetable crops in 
late December. Generally, minor damage from frost, and 
strong, gusty winds occurred. 

In January unseasonably warm weather prevailed 
throughout most of the month. Temperatures averaged 



10 to 13 degrees above normal for some weeks. Rainfall 
was generally light during the month in central and southern 
growing areas. Northern and central areas however, 
received good showers during January. 

In February heavy rainfall occurred in North and 
West Florida while Central and South Florida received 
mostly light, scattered showers. Irrigation was very ac- 
tive. Temperatures were generally above average during 
most of the month. Several brief cold fronts passed 
through the State. The first front caused only light damage , 
which was limited mostly to minor leaf burn. Cold winds 
caused some minor problems. The crops recovered quite 
well. The second front passed through the State on Feb- 
ruary 26 and 27 bringing below freezing temperatures to 
northern and central areas. In the Hastings area, early 
planted potatoes suffered severe damage from below freez- 
ing temperatures. Younger acreage was killed back but 
recovered. Damage to other crops was restricted to 
light to moderate leaf and foliage bum. Generally only 
light damage occurred in southern farming areas. 

Temperatures during March were well above nor- 
mal. Rainfall the first half of the month was light. Showers 
occurred over much of the central, northern and western 
areas the last half of the month. Southern farming areas 
were dry during most of the month. Irrigation was active. 
Crops made good growth. 

Rainfall was generally light throughout the State 
during April. Locally heavy showers occurred in some 
West Florida areas. Central and South Florida were ex- 
tremely dry. Heavy irrigation was required. Tempera- 
tures were variable. Several weeks averaged below nor- 
mal while other weeks were above normal. 

Dry conditions continued over most of the State 
during the first half of May. Local showers relieved the 
drought in some areas about mid-month. Temperatures 
were near normal. Local showers continued through the 
last part of the month. May marked the end of harvest for 
most vegetables in the southern growing areas. The bulk 
of the remaining supplies came from Central and North 
Florida. 

Much of June was hot and humid. Heavy rains in 
central and southern areas caused some flooding. Some 
areas received around fifteen inches of rainfall during the 
week ending June 28. Some corn in the Zellwood area was 
lost due to heavy rains and wet soils. Machinery was un- 
able to enter the soggy fields for harvest operations. 

Much of the weather data was supplied by the Fed- 
eral-State Agricultural Weather Service, Lakeland, 
Florida.

SNAP BEANS 
1973-74 



Florida growers produced 3. 8 million bushels of 
bush and pole beans during the 1973-74 season. Harvested 
acres at 36,900 was slightly below last year's 37,100 
acres. The season average yield per acre at 102 bushels 
was a decline of 9 bushels from the 1972-73 average of 111 
bushels. As a result of declining average yields and har- 
vested acreage, total production at 3. 8 million bushels, 
declined 9 percent from the previous season. 

The average f. o. b. price of $5. 52 per bushel was 
23 cents above last season's record high of $5.29 per 
bushel. Total value at $20. 7 million was only 5 percent 
below last season's record high of $21.7 million. The 
increase in per unit price was largely responsible for 
holding up the total value. 



Earliest supplies of snap beans are available from 
West Florida with North and West Central Florida, the 
Everglades, and southeastern districts also providing fall 
production. The Southeast is the sole source of supply 
during the winter. The other areas resume production 
in the spring. 

Snapbeans were available for market from 
September to June. The 1973-74 season had two peak 
marketing months. A fall peak in November being unusual 
followed by a low period of marketings in January and the 
normal spring peak in April. Nearly 20 percent of the 
marketings took place in April. 



Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with 
the exception of the East Central and Southwest. The 
Southeast with 87 percent of the total harvested acreage, 
is the major producing area. Pole beans are produced 
primarily in Dade County with small acreages also grown 
in the western and west central areas. 



Heavy rains, frost, and hail were major setbacks 
during the 1973-74 season in the Pompano and Dade County 
areas. When not suffering from weather setbacks, yields, 
quality and plant conditions were generally good to ex- 
cellent. Rust reduced yield in some fields but generally 
was not a serious problem. 



CABBAGE 
1973-74 



Production of cabbage in Florida totaled 8. 5 million 
sacks and crates during the 1973-74 season. The gross 
value was $17. 6 million, down 26 percent from the record 
high value of the 1972-73 season. The average f. o. b. price 
was $2.06, down sharply from the $2.91 received In 
1972-73. 



Total acres planted during the season, at 19,000, 
was 7 percent more than last season, however, the 17,800 
acres harvested was only 400 acres more than a year ago. 
The average yield was a record high of 480 crates per acre, 
9 crates above the previous high of 1972-73. 

Sales were heavy during the January-May period 
with peak marketings occurring in March when production 
exceeded 2 million crates. January marketings were more 
than 1. 7 million crates, the highest for that month in the 
last five years. 



Hastings remains the principal area of production 
with slightly more than 50 percent of the State's harvested 
acres and total volume. The North Central area continued 



to rank second in harvested acres and production with 4,200 
acres harvested and nearly 2 million crates produced. 
Growers in the south obtained the best yields in the State, 
averaging 550 crates per acre followed by the Hastings area 
with 477 crates. 



Seedbeds were prepared and transplanting began dur- 
ing late August and early September in North Florida. By 
late September , transplanting and direct seeding was under- 
way in practically all areas of the State. 

Light harvest was underway by late October, but 
cutting remained light through November. Harvest in the 
Hastings , East Coast sandlands and in the Sanford area in- 
creased during December. Cuttings rose sharply during a 
mild January and volume was higher for this month than in 
the last several years. 

Harvest reached a peak in March when more than 2 
million crates were sold. After late May supplies declined 
sharply with the few remaining sales extending into early 
July.

CARROTS 
1973-74 



Carrot production in Florida made a rapid advance 
in the 1970-71 season and continued to increase through 
the 1972-73 season. Production in 1973-74 held steady 
at this high level. The crop is utilized for both fresh 
market and processing. 

The muck soils around Zellwood and the Ever- 



glades provide a good medium for growth. The mini or 
finger-sized carrots usually begin harvest in October and 
continue through May. Regular-sized carrots are har- 
vested from November through June. Most interstate 
shipments were recorded in the December through May 
period. Peak movement occurred during March and April. 



CELERY 
1973-74 



Florida celery marketings of 6.7 million crates 
were harvested from 10,400 acres. During the 1973-74 
growing season, the average yield of 641 crates per acre 
declined from the 705 crates for the previous year. 



Prices were generally lower than for the 1972-73 
season. Celery averaged $3. 19 f.o.b. per crate com- 
pared with $3.84 per crate in 1972-73. The record-high 
price of $4. 94 was recorded in the 1971-72 season. Du- 
ring the 1973-74 season, prices were well below a year 
earlier through April but finished higher for May and June. 
The cropwas valued at $21.4 million, a decline of 28 per- 
cent from the previous season, and was 44 percent below 
the record-high value received for the 1971-72 crop. 

The Everglades , with 84 percent of the harvested 
acreage, was the foremost area of production throughout 
the season. The north central area, supplemented by 
the Sarasota area, accounted for 16 percent of the acre- 
age and provided continuing supplies throughout the sea- 
son. 



Plant bed preparation and seeding was underway 
in early June. Transplanting began in the Everglades and 
Zellwood in early August. Scheduled plantings in the Ev- 
erglades continued into mid- April, while some acreages 



in the north central district were still being seeded in 
early May. Growers in Sarasota planted weekly from Oc- 
tober to late March. 



Harvest began in early November. Growing con- 
ditions were hot and humid in the early fall. Sizes were 
somewhat below normal. As the season progressed, 
cooler weather improved yields and quality. Disease 
problems were mostly under control. The market was 
sluggish throughout much of the season. Approximately 
9 percent of the planted acreage was not harvested, which 
is about normal. Growers passed over some acreage in 
order to maintain good quality. 

Celery production was relatively stable from De- 
cember through May. Cutting was declining seasonally 
during the last half of May with June supplying less than 
6 percent of total production. Harvest was completed by 
early July. 

Celery is subject to a Federal Marketing Order 
administered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their 
field supervisors provide acreage and production data. 
In cooperation with the Committee, these data are assem- 
bled into weekly and monthly reports. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1973-74 



Chinese cabbage was grown primarily at Zellwood 
and in the Everglades. Harvest was underway in October. 
Volume was light through November but increased sharp- 
ly in December. Production in January and February 
was mostly from the Everglades with the West Central 
and North Central districts providing additional volume. 
Production continued to increase seasonally and supplies 
reached peak levels in March. During April, Zellwood 



was furnishing increasing amounts while production in the 
Everglades was declining seasonally. Much of the produc- 
tion sold during May was from harvest in the Zellwood 
area. By late May the season was essentially over. 

Yields and quality were generally good through the 
season. The crop suffered only minor damage from ad- 
verse weather and disease during the growing season.

SWEET CORN 
1973-74 



Florida, the Nation's leading sweet corn producer, 
marketed 11.8 million crates during the 1973-74 season. 
Production declined 8 percent from the previous year which 
was a record high. Growers harvested 49,900 acres, 
down 6 percent from the 52,900 acres harvested duringthe 
1972-73 season. This was the smallest harvested acreage 
since the 1963-64 season. A favorable growing season 
resulted in excellent yields. The average of 237 crates 
per acre was the second highest of record, exceeded only 
by the 244 crates per acre a year ago. 

The season average f. o. b. priceof $3. 18per crate, 
was up 23 cents from the average during the previous year 
and set a new record high. The total value of the crop was 
$37.7 million, down slightly from the record $38. million 
received for the 1972-73 crop. The value of sweet corn 
ranked third in the State in vegetable crops and was exceeded 
only by the value of tomatoes and potatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in late 
July in the Everglades. Rains interrupted plantings, but 
seedings increased weekly. Seeding on the East Coast was 
underway by October 1 and increased as the month pro- 



gressed. First pulling began in the Everglades in late 
September and reached the fall peak in November. The 
declining harvest in the Everglades during December was 
partially offset by light harvest from the Lower East Coast 
and Dade County. The Everglades spring deal was under- 
way by the end of March as "inside" acreage provided light 
volume. "Outside" acreage moved into production after 
mid-April. The Everglades became the main source of 
supply in late April as the East Coast phased out. The 
transition of harvest from the Everglades to Zellwood 
occurred in May. Zellwood increased to full volume by 
June. Lake County provided good supplies during June. 
The season was over in early July. 



Small acreages furnished supplemental supplies at 
Zellwood during the early fall, at Ft. Myers during the 
winter and at Sarasota in the spring. 

Weather duringthe season was generally favorable. 
Rains created some problems early in the season. Heavy 
rains during June caused considerable loss in the Zell- 
wood area. Cold damage was limited during the winter 
months. 



CUCUMBERS 
1973-74 



Florida production of fresh market cucumbers during 
the 1973-74 crop year totaled 3.0 million bushels, down 
15 percent from the 1972-73 crop. The 14,100 acres 
planted continues the downward trend since the high level 
of 18,300 planted during the 1968-69 season. Acreage 
totaled 13,000 compared with 14,400 during the previous 
year. Average yield per acre was down slightly from the 
245 bushel average for the previous year. Total produc- 
tion was valued at $14.6 million with f. o. b price per 
bushel averaging $4. 87, a record high. Average prices 
were above a year earlier for five of the nine months in 
which marketings occurred. 

Supplies in 1973-74 were generally available from 
October through June with very light marketings in January 
and February. Most of the recorded shipments moving out- 
of-state January through March are for off-shore and 



truck imports resold in mixed loads. 

The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the State. The southwestern area, with 42 percent 
of the harvested acreage during 1973-74 is the largest area. 
The east central area accounted for 28 percent of harvested 
acres in the State. The areas in the West, North, North 
Central and Southeast provided the remaining crop. 

Weather during the season was generally variable. 
Heavy rains early in the season caused some planting de- 
lays. Cold wind and frost did light to moderate damage 
during the winter months. Some foliage was burned but 
plants recovered and produced good crops. Some replant- 
ing was necessary. Recurring winds continued to affect 
young plantings but damage was relatively light. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1973-74 



Plantings of 1,850 acres were the same as acreage 
planted in the 1972-73 season. Acreage planted showed 
steady declines through the 1971-72 season but the trend 
was reversed in 1972-73 with a slight upturn. Yields aver- 
aged a record f|43 bushels per acre. The previous high 
was 597 bushels per acre reached in 1971-72. Weather 
was generally favorable. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1.2 million 
bushels and equaled the high level reached in the mid- six- 
ties. Total value rose to a record $4.2 million as a re- 
sult of increased production and improved prices. The av- 
erage price for the season was $3. 62 per bushel, compar- 
ed with $3.48 for the previous season. 

The distribution of marketings was near normal. 
Harvest began in October, reached a high level in Novem- 
ber, and declined seasonally through February. Harvest 



then increased to a peak in May and early June. Supplies 
were generally light in October, January and February. 
Harvest was completed by early July. The Southeast area 
around Pompano continued to dominate with 63 percent of 
the harvested acreage. The northern and central areas 
together contributed 28 percent of acreage harvested with 
the remaining small acreage in the Southwest. 

Production was continuous through the entire crop 
year in the Southeast and Southwest, while the crops in the 
western, northern and central areas were for fall and 
spring harvest only. 

Earliest sales were from cuttings in the western 
and northern growing areas with the first supplies avail- 
able in early October. Harvest progressed southward in 
the fall, continued through the winter in the southern areas, 
then moved northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE- ENDIVE 
1973-74 



The production of escarole and endive including 
chicory during the 1973-74 crop year totaled 3.2 million 
crates. This compared with 3.8 million crates harvested 
in the 1972-73 season. The 6,000 acres harvested were 
down 7 percent from the previous season, and the least 
acreage harvested since the 5,600 acres in the 1967-68 
season. Yield per acre averaged 516 crates compared with 
the record-high 582 crates in the 1972-73 season. Prices 
during much of the fall and winter period were mostly un- 
favorable, but improved during the spring quarter. The 
f.o.b. season average was $2.27 per crate — the same as 
for the previous season. The total value of sales at $7.0 
million was 18 percent below the previous record-high sea- 
son. 



crop, were also being harvested in mid- October; however, 
very limited acreage in this area was planted for January- 
March cutting. Smaller acreage grown on Lake Placid and 
Sarasota mucklands also furnished supplemental supplies 
during most of the season. 



Sales started slow in October but good volume was 
reached by November. Marketings increased to the March 
peak, then declined in April as the Everglades began phas- 
ing out for the season. Good supplies mostly from Zell- 
wood continued through May, with the Sarasota area pro- 
viding supplemental volume. 



The Everglades, which had 79 percent of the har- 
vested acreage, began seeding in late August. Weekly plant- 
ing schedules continued to be followed through most of 
March. Light harvest began in mid-October and supplies 
were continuous through May. The mucklands around Z ell- 
wood, which constituted a large portion of the remaining 



Growing conditions were generally favorable during 
most of the season. Warm temperatures hampered weed 
control. High winds caused some minor problems but re- 
covery was rapid. The winter was mostly mild and very 
little damage was done by frost or freezing.

LETTUCE 
1973-74 



Florida lettuce growers produced arecord 1. 2 
million hundredweight during the 1973-74 season. This 
production topped the 1972-73 production by 11 percent. 
An 18 percent increase in acreage accounted for all of the 
increase since average yields were slightly less. Average 
yield was 165 cwt. per acre, the second highest of record. 
The season average f.o. b. price of $6.72 per cwt. was 
$1.93 below the previous season and was well below 
average. Monthly prices were well below the previous 
year. Prices during the late fall and winter months de- 
clined to extremely low levels but improved somewhat 
during April and May. 

Acreage, production and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single 
estimate. These types include the predominant Iceberg 
and Romaine as well as Boston, Bibb and Leaf. 

The Everglades accounted for 80 percent of the 
planted acreage in the State. The Everglades muckland 
is the major source of a continuous supply which begins 
in late October and ends in early June. Zellwood is the 
other major producing area with Sarasota and the Lake 
Placid mucklands contributing to supplies during much of 
the season. 



Seeding was underway by early September. All 
areas were active by mid-month with the Everglades, 
Sarasota and Lake Placid scheduling plantings through 
March in order to produce a continuous supply of the var- 
ious types from October through May. The Central area 
normally discontinues production on the mucklands from 
December until April. However, the warmer, sandlands 
around Zellwood provide light supplies during the winter 
period. 

Harvest was underway by mid-October with light 
volume through November. Supplies of all types increas- 
ed in late November with growers cutting in all areas. 
Volume increased sharply in December and remained 
steady through February. The Everglades was providing 
the bulk of the volume by early January. Production 
reached a peak in March and continued heavy in April when 
the central areas resumed full production to supplement 
the Everglades harvest. Production dropped sharply in 
May and the season was over in early June. 

Weather was generally favorable during most of 
the crop year. Brief periods of cold, windy weather in 
December and February caused some minor damage to 
the young, tender crop. 



PEPPERS 
1973-74 



During the 1973-74 season, 6. 3 million bushels of 
peppers were produced on 13,400 harvested acres. The 
average yield of 473 bushels per acre is the highest of 
record. The previous high was 459 bushels produced a 
year earlier. A greater use of plastic mulch contributed 
to the high yields in recent years. 

The crop was valued at $31.0 million, a record 
high. This was 16 percent above the previous record es- 
tablished a year ago. Prices were generally favorable 
throughout much of the season. The f . o, b. season average 
of $4.90per bushel compares with $4.14 the previous 
year. Prices were favorable in the early fall and hit a low 
level in January. Prices then improved through May but 
declined in June as the season ended. 

Marketings started light in October, reached a high 



level by December and peaked in April. The season closed 
in June. Planted acreage declined slightly in all areas. 
The bulk of peppers are planted in the Southwest accounting 
for 57 percent of the total. The Southeast contributed 2 
percent of the total and the Central and North made up the 
remaining acreage. 

Heavy rains in September in the Ft. Myers area 
caused some washingof beds, fertilizer leaching and de- 
layed plantings. Some spot replanting was n e c e s s a r y. 
Damage was heaviest in fields without plastic. Damage 
from cold in December was light. Some foliage burn 
occurred in late February in the southern areas j Some 
mosaic showed up in a few fields but for the most 
part disease was under control. Weather conditions in 
March and April were favorable for crop development 
which contributed to the record yields.

POTATOES 
1973-74 



Florida's production of potatoes in 1974, including 
both the winter and spring crops, totaled 5. 5 million 
hundredweight, up slightly from 1973. A total of 31,300 
acres was planted, up nearly 4 percent from 1973, how- 
ever, the 30,900 acres harvested was only 2 percentabove 
the previous season. Total sales were $42.7 million, a 41 
percent increase over the $30.3 million realized in 1973. 

The average yield in 1974 of 179 cwt. per acre was 
slightly lower than the average of 182 cwt. in 1973. The 
winter acreage averaged 190 cwt. while the spring yields 
were lower. Hastings' yields averaged 175 cwt. and "other 
spring" acreages averaged 170 cwt. per acre. 

The average price of $7. 72 per cwt. received for 
all grades and sizes and all methods of sale was a record 
for Florida, exceedingthe 1920 average of $6. 62. The high 



market in 1974 was preceded by a seed shortage which 
sent the price of seed potatoes to a record high for those 
who had not bought seed before the planting season. The 
fall 1973 storage stocks on hand February 1, 1974 were 
the lowest in 6 years, which also contributed to the higher 
price. 

The winter acreage in South Florida continued to be 
dominated by red skinned LaCosta and LaRouge varieties, 
grown primarily for table stock sales. The spring potatoes 
at Hastings were mostly the white skinned SebaKO variety 
used in the potato chip trade. The crop in Hastings was off 
to an early start. A mild January promoted rapid growth 
and the crop was well advanced when freezing temperatures 
during the early morning hours of February 26 and 2 7 
severely damaged early planted potatoes. This resulted in 
lower yields and about 200 acres were finally abandoned in 
the area. 



RADISHES 
1973-74 



Radish statistics for Florida are published 
separately for the first time this year. Data for the 
1965-66 crop year to date are shown for comparison. In 
1973-74, 30,800 acres were planted compared with 27,000 
acres for the previous season. Acres harvested totaled 
26,600 and yields averaged 322 cartons per acre. The 
crop was valued at $11.4 million compared with $13. 1 
million for the previous season. The average f . o. b. price 
was $1.33 per carton, up 4 cents from a yearearlier. 



A good supply of red and white radishes were 
available from the Everglades and Zellwood from October 
through May. Peak harvest occurred in March. Light 
harvest started in September and ended in early June. 
Seeding of the 1973-74 crop was underway in the Everglades 
and north central areas in late August and early September. 
A few early loads were pulled in late September and har- 
vest was in full swing by mid-October. Supplemental sup- 
plies were available from Sarasota and Lake Placid. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1973-74 



Spinach statistics are not published for the 1973-74 
season in Florida in order to avoid disclosing individual 
operations. Data have been included in "other vegetables" 
in the overall summary table. 



Generally favorable weather prevailed during much 
of the growing season. Frost occurred in December and 
on several mornings during February and was helpful in 
control of weeds.

SQUASH 
1973-74 



Florida's production of squash during the 1973-74 
season totaled 1. 5 million bushels, slightly less than the 
previous season. Harvested acreage was 3 percent above 
last year's crop, however, the average yield at 145 bushels 
per acre decreased by 6 bushels resulting in a slightly 
lower total production. The trend toward a larger per- 
centage of planted acres harvested is continuing with 93 
percent harvested. 

The average f.o. b. price at $5. 78 per bushel for 
the crop year was 29 cents above last year's average. 
The increase in per unit price was sufficient for a record 
high total value of sales at $8. 5 million, 4 percent above 
last season's record high. Prices for six of the nine major 
marketing months were above the previous season, with 
December having the largest increase of $2. 50 per bushel 
from the comparable period for last year. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. 
Dade County with 37 percent of the State' s harvested acreage 
in 1973-74, produces yellow crookneck almost exclusively. 



The Pompano area, in addition to being a major producing 
area, is also an important market for squash grown in 
other sections of the State, especially when local supplies 
reach low levels during the winter months. The Southwest 
area produces a continuous supply of most types. . Central, 
North and West Florida provide good volume of most types 
during the fall and spring shipping seasons . 

Squash is one of the few crops in Florida that is 
shipped every month of the year. Summer movement, how- 
ever, is generally lightand usually goes to local markets. 
Early season planting and field work was off to a good 
start in the fall. Rains hampered West Central crops in 
early October, otherwise crop conditions were favorable 
thru October and November. Heavy frost killed most of the 
Southwest crop in mid-December. From mid-December 
thru February frost and mosaic hampered yields and 
caused minor damage to plants. The 1973-74 season be- 
gan with a large volume of 232 thousand bushels in November 
and then leveled off at about 150 thousand per month until 
the spring peak of 282 thousand in April. A sharp decline 
in production occurred during May with light supplies avail- 
able after the 1st of June. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1973-74 



Florida strawberry growers produced 1.7 million 
flats of berries during the 1973-74 season, a decline of 
7 percent from the 1972-73 crop. The 1,300 acres in 
production was 100 acres less than in 1972-73. Acreage 
continued the downward trend from the 3, 300 acres planted 
in 1964-65. A record yield of 1,321 flats per acre was 
attained during the 1973-74 season. This yield was 4 flats 
above the previous record of 1,317 a year earlier. The 
average f. o. b. return per flat, at $3. 91, was 50 cents 
below the average for the previous year but above other 
recent years. Growers realized $6. 7 million for their 
crop. This compares with the record of $8. 1 million for 
a year earlier. 

Laying of plastic and other field preparation was 
active in September in the Hillsborough and Dade County 
producing areas . E ar liest plants were set in mid-October 
in the West Central, Dade and North Florida areas. A de- 



lay in plant arrivals held up progress of planting somewhat. 
Plantings were active through mid-November, and 
virtually complete by the end of the month. 

Light picking was underway by late December i n 
the Hillsborough and Dade County areas. Harvesting began 
in Bradford County by late March. Normally there are 
two peak periods during the season. The first was reached 
during late January and the second was reached in mid- 
March. Most of the commercial harvest was completed 
by mid-April. Growers then opened the crop to the 
public. Warm weather during January hastened maturity 
and reduced size. Cooler tsmperatures in February 
slowed maturity and sizes increased. Weather was 
generally favorable during the harvesting period. Heavy 
fruit set and improved sizes in February and March helped 
reach the record yields.

TOMATOES 
1973-74 



The total value of $122. 3 million for the fresh and 
processing tomato market continued for a third year to sur- 
pass the $100 million mark, increasing by 9 percent from 
the 1972-73 season. The major contributors to the increase 
were higher average yields per acre and a 9 percent gain 
in per unit value. These factors overcame a sharp drop of 
24 percent in acreage from the previous season. 

Total production at 24 . 6 million 30-pound carton 
equivalents, was virtually unchanged from the previous 
season. The fresh market channel utilized 94 percent of 
the production; leaving 6 percent for processing. The 
trend over the past few years indicates a declining per- 
centage of the total tomato production going into the pro- 
cessed market. The Palmetto-Ruskin area had the most 
production. 

The State average yield at 705, 30-pound cartons 
per acre was the highest recorded. This was 172 cartons 
higher than last season and 55 cartons above the previous 
record of 654 cartons for the 1963-64 season. The events 
which led to the record-high average yield were a higher 
percentage of staked tomato acreage and the use of plastic 
mulching. The Southwest recorded the highest per acre 
average yield at 895 cartons. Production reached the 
seasonal peak in May accounting for 21. 6 percent of the 



total fresh market sales. Fresh market sales were more 
evenly distributed throughout the 1973-74 season than in 
previous years. Tomatoes are generally available from 
October to mid- June. 

Dade County continued to lead the State in harvested 
acreage with 12, 800 acres. The Palmetto-Ruskin area was 
second in acreage followed by the Southwest and Ft. Pierce - 
Pompano area. A small acreage of tomatoes was grown 
in the west, north and north central areas. 

Early season progress was characterized by wet 
weather which hampered plantings. Plastic mulching and 
changing cultural practices of shifting to more staked to- 
matoes were other factors slowing down plantings. Mid- 
September through mid-November weather was favorable 
to plant growth and field work. Heavy rains during mid 
to late November set back plantings and field work. 
During December, cold weather prevailed throughout the 
farming areas. Minor damage to mature and near mature 
fruit was caused by strong winds and moderate rains along 
with the freezing temperatures. Harvest in some areas 
was delayed because of fuel, transportation and labor 
problems. January temperatures were generally above 
normal. Except for several cool fronts in February, the 
remaining part of the season was characterized by un- 
seasonably warm, dry weather. 



WATERMELONS 
1973-74 



Acreage planted to watermelons in Florida during 
1974 totaled 50,000 acres, 9 percent less than 1973. Of 
this total, 44,500 acres were harvested - also down 9 
percent. Growers realized a yield of 150 cwt. per acre 
compared with 160 cwt. the year before. A record f. o. b. 
price, averaging nearly 3. 3 cents per pound, was re- 
ceived. The total value of the crop was placed at $21. 9 
million, 8 percent below the year before. 



The watermelon season usually begins in the Ft. 
Myers -Immokalee area in late March or early April. 
The season progresses through Central Florida during 
May while northern areas provide heavy June volume. 
West Florida's harvest begins in June and continues well 
into July. 

Watermelon seeding was underway in the 
Immokalee area in late November and early December, 
while land preparation was very active in other parts of 
the southern and central areas for December-January 
planting. Generally, the crop came through the December 



cold without major damage. Several cold fronts in Feb- 
ruary caused light foliage burn in the Southwest area. 
Young, tender plants in the West Central area suffered 
considerable damage from frost and wind burn in late 
February. The vines recovered quite well. 



The crop improved rapidly i n March as warm 
weather prevailed. By mid-March plantings were active 
in northern and western areas. Some plantings were de- 
layed due to dry soils. The crop made good progress 
during most of the growing season. The Southwest made 
first cuttings around late March, about on schedule. 
Early demand was fair to good and improved as warm 
weather progressed. Supplies increased in May as the 
central areas came into production. Harvest continued to 
move northward. 



Peak seasonal movement was reached during June. 
Light sales continued into July as the season reached the 
end in the northern and western areas.

OTHER CROPS 
1973-74 



Cantaloups are grown primarily in the southwest and 
north central areas of Florida. Virtually all of the produc- 
tion sold goes through local markets in bushel containers. 
Most of the crop is harvested and sold in May and June. 
Availability of supplies begins with the southwestern portion 
of the State and moves northward as the season progresses. 

Cauliflower is available from mid- January into early 
April. Supplies come primarily from the Ruskin area with 
supplementary volume from small acreages in the North Cen- 
tral area. 

Cuban vegetables have been expanding rapidly in Flor- 
ida in recent years. Commercial production began in the 
early 60's. The crops consist primarily of batatas- bo niatos , 
calabazas-pumpkin, malangas-yautias, andyucas. These 
commodities are produced principally in the Dade County 
area with shipments generally continuous throughout the yea r . 

Collard, turnip, and mustard greens are grown for 
both fresh and processing markets. These commodities 
are grown primarily in the north central and Everglades 
areas. Good supplies are available from October through 
June with the heaviest movement in the January- March per- 
iod. Shipments in other months are generally light. Greens 
for local markets are grown adjacent to most of the large 
population centers. 



Okra is grown in many areas of the State during the 
warm seasons of the year. Dade County produces okra du- 
ring most of the year for local use and shipment to other 
markets. Heaviest shipments occur in March through June, 
with May being the peak month. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the North Cen- 
tral area mostly for local markets. A limited quantity of 
dry onions is also available. 

Parsley is available in both the curly and plain varie- 
ties. The bulk of supplies arefrom the Everglades and Zell- 
wood. Limited supplies, primarily for local use, are avail- 
able from the Sarasota and Lake Placid areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the northwest 
andwest central areas of Florida, with some acreagegrown 
in Dade County and the Everglades. Light supplies are avail- 
able from September through December with the majority of 
supplies coming in the April-June period. A high percen- 
tage of this crop moves to processors or through local mar- 
kets. 

Watercress is available year-round. The major 
source of supply is Oviedo. Virtually all of the production 
is shipped to northeastern markets.
